difficult child came home on Saturday - so far so good. She did her own laundry, folded it and put it away on her own (well, except for one last small load which she will do today). She also cleaned her room and organized all the things that I packed into bins. It looks neat. She even made her bed this morning before we left the house. Wow - I was horrified to see that she's missed many days of her medications over the past two weeks at her dads . I guess he was good about reminding her for a while and then just forgot about it or trusted that she actually took it. Well, even difficult child didn't know which end was up with her medications container. She couldn't tell what she had taken and what she missed. So we dumped it out together and reorganized it. It's in order and she takes it first thing in the morning. So, today is her first day of actual job hunting. Yesterday we drove around and noted all the places with help wanted signs in their windows. As we're leaving this morning I realized that difficult child never unpacked her toothebrush (ewwww!) so I asked her if she intended on ever brushing her teeth before interviewing, etc. She went into her dopp kit bag in a huff and pulled out the toothebrush and got to it. We left and we're halfway to my office and I notice that she doesn't have her information/resume folder or the list of places to go!! OMG, have to turn the car around and go get them. Now I will be late for work. Yikes! At 9:45 AM I gently remind difficult child that it's time to start pounding the pavement, she leaves and returns about 15 minutes later. I hadn't expected to see her for a couple of hours! She claims that she came back to complete the on line app for Walgreens. I asked her why she couldn't do that AFTER she had hit all the other places while she was already out! Jeesh. "What a maroon" as Bugs would say. Anyway, she turns on her heel in a huff and says, "Well I was HOT, mom, or haven't you noticed that it's like 90 degrees outside today!" Bwaahaaahaaa...I said I didn't care, closed my door and reminded her of the importance of the situation. I asked her if she'd like to go over the conditions of her living at home once more and she said no, not really and left to head back out to the other places. She called me after about an hour and said she got a job at Sharper Image. I asked when she starts and she said, "well, the guy has to call me in a couple of days"....oh, okay. I told her to continue and hit the other places and keep her 1PM interview. She asked, "why if I have a job?" Uhhh, hon, it's not a job until they give you a start date and time. Duh. She was angry, but she pressed on. So this is fun, and hard, but I don't care. And this is the girl who said she was ready to live on her own 6 weeks ago. Yeah, right. And I'm an astronaut.
